Apollo 15 was a lunar mission launched by NASA on July 26, 1971. It landed on the Moon on August 7[1], and was crewed by James Irwin[2], David Scott[3], and Alfred Worden[4].

On the return trip, one of the three main parachutes failed, forcing the spacecraft to make a splashdown, reminescent of Apollo 13's splashdown in 1970.
